As 2011 quietly came to a close, never in my wildest dreams did I think that 2012 would kick off with a Code Year. It happened by accident really, just a brief glimpse at a twitter post encouraging all walks of life to make this The Year They Learned To Code. This free and accesible learning program is called Codecademy and all kinds of people from coding n00bs to seasoned geeks (and even Michael Bloomberg!) have jumped on board.
I’m truly excited to see the results of Code Year, both for myself and the countless people around the world who are seizing an incredible opportunity to pick up a new skill. Kudos to Codecademy for dreaming so big!
p.s. It’s not too late to sign up yourself!
